Parting is such sweet sorrow

And so it is.

We will be leaving Fort Lauderdale in the next few days and heading back to Birmingham via the West coast.  We plan on stopping at a place called ECHO.  We've visited before when we lived in Florida, but it will be much more meaningful now that we work with an impoverished area in Peru.  Looking forward to it!

Meanwhile, we still have a few meetings before hitting the road. 

Bill has managed to meet with groups or individuals every day for the past 2 weeks or so.  And life has been a little bit of everything for the rest of us.  It's just going to be that way when we travel as a family.  We've added a little bit of new friends, memorable meals (think cooking gourmet in a 4x4ft area with other family members trying to get around or get things...), swimming at the "Helm Hotel" (our base house when we come down), being flexible in space (kitchen table is aka the office) and time, and countless other things I've already forgotten.

There is one thing I have NOT enjoyed. 

Our RV spot happens to be on more dirt/sand than grass.  Mix in 3 boys and one RV and wa la, you have yourself an instant magnet for dirt on the floor.  ALL THE TIME!!!  We've had the boys try to remember to take their shoes off or wipe it on the outside mat, but to no avail.

And I'm not sure why, but we have a straw broom instead of the other kind.  ???   Do you feel my pain?! 

I'm fine now.  Just had to get that off my chest. 

So, soon we will be back to our little casita for awhile.  We have already started filling up the calendar though and all but December seem to have something scheduled.  One bit of good news:  we will be doing an International Dinner July 16 here in Fort Lauderdale.  We are still getting all the details worked out, but we have a space for about 150 people.  Woo Hoo!  So, if you are in the area, plan on attending! 

If you haven't "liked" us on Facebook yet, head on over, type in "Believer's Bridge" and like us.  We try to put updates on it to keep folks informed.

I have not taken many photos this time around, but will try to put some up soon.  Until then, you'll just have to stay in suspense. ;-)
